Apple’s series of “Shot on iPhone” ads have featured some really amazing shorts and Snowbrawl continues to build on great production value. John Wick and Deadpool 2 director, David Leitch, created a 90-second snowball fight and that’s amazing!
Leitch told Nerdist, “We were getting creative with the flexibility of the camera—how light they are and how mobile they are. Things that are hard to simulate with big film cameras, we were able to make this classic Kung Fu composition very quickly and easily. It was fun. I could tell from the first show where we had the backlight going through the smoke and she’s running at 4K 60 frames per second and it was really beautiful and epic and again we were embracing the strengths of the camera.”
Snowbrawl features a girl and her friends against her brother and his friends. They work together to defeat her brother and his friends. There are all sorts of great camera movements and angles, along with slowing down the film to capture some great moments.
Do you love making short films? What kind of film would you make with your iphone if you had a solid production budget?
